Re: Z move before X and Y after tool change

One missing piece of information on my part. I’m using Mach Standard Mill and it has its own tool change routines. When you call for a tool change it goes to a designated x,y,z and measures the tool if necessary.

I figured out the problem. In the Tool Change tab under Job Options there’s a check box for “No move to safe Z after tool change”. When it is checked there’s no Z move before the spindle is started. The output looks like this:
